My Unforgettable Story to Untrammeled Stretches of Laos in a Cycle

When hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle . . .

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.

                                                                                               ~Arthur Conan Doyle
Adventure is in my blood. During my childhood, I often implored my father to take me for cycle ride in the cool mornings. He always supported me and kept all my wishes. When I grew up, I eagerly heard adventurous stories of mountain hiking and cycling from my elder brother. All these things induced the seed of adventure within me. Everyone used to call me a bookworm because I used to spend most of the time reading adventurous books and biographies.

After attaining maturity, I left home for adventures. After doing lot of research on various biking tours around the world, my first ch…

Found Our Love in Laos- The Magical Destination

“That honeymoon phase is so much fun in real life, when you meet and discover somebody new and fall in love and chase them. The pursuit. And that climactic final moment of ultimate togetherness.”

Surrealism Draws Me Back To The Land Of Blue Dragons

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” -T. S. Eliot
If someone asks me to travel again and again to any of my previously traveled destinations, the one and only place will be Vietnam, the Land of Blue Dragons. I have visited this country few years back with my family and that experience managed to give me a hangover so strong that I decided to pack my bags and head for Vietnam once again. And this time with the group of my travel freak friends, I have traveled this country for a second time, and it was a jaw-dropping experience for me.

The entire scenario of that interesting country got changed with the development of its tourism sectors. The grandeur of this country was not unknown to me, but this time it reached the utmost level of ecstasy. We thought about choosing Vietnam travel packages, but later we decided to go by ourselves without following any guidebook.

My Stint with Laos: The Land of Enchantment

Finally managed to visit Laos! The first day of my ten long day stay in Laos, I woke up in the capital city of Laos. Backpacking through Southeast Asia, I had plans to enjoy the stunning waterfalls, healthy cuisines, smiling locals and Buddhist temples undiscovered by ordinary traveler in Laos. Most visitors spend one or two days in the capital city before heading back to Bangkok. But my visit to this land of delight helped me find the real gems of Southeast Asia.
Vientiane

I planned to go easy on the first day at Vientiane. The city of Moon, I spent my day enjoying a leisurely walk on the streets to take in the feel of being in a relaxed and comfortable locale completely different from the crowded and noisy destinations. In the following days of my stay, I found this to be the friendliest place in Laos. A visit to the Golden Stupa, the biggest as well as the most magnificent stupas, I found it to be different from the temples and stupas in Thailand.
